My bind off for my toe up socks is so tight I can't get the sock up my calf. Any suggestions how I can make it stretchier? It's a 2x2 rib, and I did a simple bind off in pattern.

There are several alternatives. An easy one is to bind off with a needle several sizes larger than your working needle. No need to transfer stitches just work in pattern onto the larger needle as you bind off. There's also Jeny's stretchy bind off:

Thanks!  I'll give those a try.
